to the most powerful impact of the republican party. norquist can't vote for one. memo to washington who people think there could be a deal easily, these republicans don't fear the wrath of speaker boehner like they do the whip of norquist. in two weeks' time, we'll have a dramatic tax increase. going over the cliff is the only way these norquist controlled republicans can spare the wrath of grover. which i believe having known grover for 35 years is indeed worth than the wrath of khan. so why bother to sell now? it's a pretty legitimate subsequent, can't it? now we rallied 7% from the november woes. and i believe we can keep selling off. not hard, but certainly a couple percent as more and more people recognize that we could be going over the cliff. even if this is why you shouldn't sell. pull back again. perhaps by getting the achievable goal by helping the middle class with tax breaks. remember, it isn't a cliff where you have a hard landing. more kind of a jump on to a trampoline, maybe like a deep swimming pool. there is a recovery that is almost a certainty, but it could be a vicio

guns being part of the problem. what's the reaction from this press conference? >> in washington the reaction was somewhat shocked by the news conference just because of the tone. it was so different from what we've been hearing from others in particular president omo bama who had called out on gun control. he's made this commission that vice president will lead that's supposed to report backy. and then wayne lapierre came forward and talked about putting armed officers in the nation. he was not aiming for the beltway crowd. that's important to remember. it will be interesting in the next few weeks and months how his comments played in other parts of the country outside the beltway. that's who he was talking to. >> he made the rounds in the morning talk shows and stood his ground despite the backlash. it would cost more than $2 billion to put security officers at every school in the country. does the timing seem odd that this is something that the n.r.a. is pushing for? >> it calls for congress to make this available immediately. congress and the pre

lawmakers return to washington after the christmas holiday, a little bit later on this week. that's when they're going to resume negotiations in earnest. of course there had been hopes that the president and house speaker john boehner were going to get a deal done. if you looked at the beginning of last week, they were getting close to a deal it appeared but that fell apart and talks fell apart. president obama said i will accept a smaller deal as long as it doesn't allow rates for those to go up for those making $250,000 or less. over the weekend you had a few senators, including senator joe lieberman saying they believe now more than ever we may be getting closer to actually going over the fiscal cliff. that is of course hanging over the heads of a lot of americans as they enter this holiday season and also looming over this vacation the president is having. i'll give you a little sense of what president obama has been up to in hawaii. on saturday he played a round of golf with some of his closest friends and advisers and later in the day he went to dinner with the first lady and frien

relating to the fiscal cliff is dana bash. she joins me now from washington. dana, great to see you again. tell me does even a band-aid approach work? >> it's going to be tough. this is all math. but it really has to do with the math with regard to votes. and democrats especially who i'm talking to in the senate which is probably where this will originate, the reality is that democrats don't hold a very big majority. her going to need to have a handful of republicans to cross party lines and vote with them on the whole concept of raising any taxes. especially what the president wants which is something that is raising taxes on all americans making more than $250,000. that's the senate. never mind the house, which of course, made clear to the house speaker that they won't even go for something that's a million dollars or more when it comes to tax increases. that was last week. >> dana, you were saying that when you were reporting on it when it was breaking that evening, you called that devastating for john boehner. now that house republicans have clearly rebelled against john boehner, can
't think that's a positive example for children. >> reporter: our new abc washington news post pole shows a majority of americans continue to favor more restrictions on gun ownership. that may be the reason other americans are flocking to gun stores. shelves empty just this week at this north carolina store. >> we've never seen anything like this. we have the christmas business, the hunting season business, and now we have the political business. >> lapierre was pressed time and time again whether he would agree to one change in gun law, he either refused to answer or changed the subject. he finished by saying the gun is the tool. the problem is the criminal. >> let me ask you about another washington story. we're nine days away from going over the fiscal cliff. any progress to speak of today? >> there are a number of members of congress today asking that the president and the speaker try one more time. both republicans and democrats in the senate are saying the chances of that big debt-reducing deal really are lost. it's now a small deal, they expect it out of the senate probably later t
, explain to all of us because it appears the lights are out in washington d.c. the president is in hawaii. everyone is home. with all the sides saying that they expect to go over the cliff, it looks pretty likely that that might just happen. >> well, i certainly think that concern is growing. that that's a real possibility at this point. at the same time, thomas, i think there's still so much pressure on all sides so get something done because as he heard joe lieberman said, the consequences would be huge. the economy could potentially slip back into recession. the white house has described this as a working vacation for president obama, but the reality is that negotiations are largely deadlocked on all sides. there have been a few talks going on at the staff level, but the real bulk of this work is going to get done when lawmakers return to washington later this week after the christmas holiday and resume manageses. that's when we're going to see the focus really shift away from the house and on to the senate. of course, speaker boehner tried to get his plan b, alternative bill through t
